Room Parents / Padres de Salón

Room parents assist the teachers of their children both inside the classroom and in the development of projects. Room parent responsibilities often include reaching out to the other parents in their class about upcoming events and field trips and school needs. The time commitment is roughly an hour a week. The nature of the work of each Room Parent will be determined in collaboration between the parent and teacher.

Los padres de Salon apoyan a los maestros de sus niños adentro del salon y también en el desarrollo de proyectos. Sus responsabilidades normalmente incluyen la comunicación con otras familias de niños en su aula acerca de eventos pendientes, viajes de paseo y necesidades de la escuela. El compromiso de tiempo será más o menos una hora a la semana. El maestro y el padre de salon se decidirán juntos de que se van a enfocar sus esfuerzos.   

Volunteer Opportunities
